Preparing for Core Web Vitals with Kathy Brown & Karl Kleinschmidt

"Kathy let me start off with you. Gimme the update in the lay of the land. Where do we stand in terms of the out of core web vitals. So you got it exactly right. We are anticipating that the core web vitals will roll out in may twenty twenty one. And it's going to be part of the larger page. Experience ranking factor that ragging factor includes lots of other ranking factors. That are already employ such as https mobile friendly and penalizing intrusive ads in mobile. But what's new is the core web vitals of course so most of our clients are busy looking at their google search console. Report to see what. Google is telling them the corwin i need to focus on and make better and yeah we're just waiting to make better and waiting for the rollout in may so interesting to me about core web vitals. It is really the start of google talking a little bit about what their ranking factors are not specifically from a content ranking but from a technical perspective when we think about what core web vital actually are. Help me break down the difference between the core web vitals. We're talking a lot of detail about what each individual acronym means but overall what our core web vitals. What's the utility for them. Yeah the other thing. I wanted to mention is. It's kind of unusual for google to pre-announce changes. I mean usually we have these four updates or changes at gonna get just roll out or we don't get a lot of notice about the with the vitals we've gotten almost a year's advance notice or where vital so that may give you a clue on how important google thinks. These are the core web vitals. As i mentioned are part of an aggregate raqi factor called page experience. And one thing. I think is kind of interesting as we know. Google has been telling us like you need. Make your pages more performance. They need to be faster. A lot of people listening to this podcast probably know about sap which is the first content full paint so you need to get something on the screen fast or your user will abandon your side and never come back. What i find interesting about. Page experience in the core web vitals is that it's not just about speed it's also about. The experience of the page. Does the page jump around. Does the page respond input and in fact. That is the three core web vitals. There's largest tempur paint which is a measure of one. Something meaningful appears on page. There's f. i d. Which is i input delay. And that's a measure of how quickly the page response to any input. Like a click. Or scroll and then finally we have cunard layout shift which is a measure of how much the page jumps around as rendering. So it's almost like a more holistic view of the page experience and not just about speed but it's also about having pleasing experience as you get the page loaded and interact with it. I think it's also important to say that a lot of your user experience and or technical staff of bharati heard of these terms in the past and maybe are already tracking them before this was announced. But there's a lot of little intricacy to worry about with how google is calculating them that you wanna be careful to take into consideration so that you don't rely on non google definitions of those terms one of the things that i took away from some of google's announcements last year and the rollout of core web vitals that they are actually talking about what their ranking factors are. Carl as you mention. Google is essentially assigning values to how they're figuring out what they consider to be a good page experience. It's one of the most important ranking factors that at least they've publicly stated and there's https and some of the security protocols and some of the other things that google on the technical side of said. This is how we evaluate pages. Kathy you also mentioned that. Normally they don't give us an advance notification of when something is rolling out normally they roll it out and then tell us to me the separation of church and state here is when it's a content ranking factor. How do we figure out whether something is relevant to the audience. We're going to do it and then tell you when it is a tactical ranking factor. They give us a little bit more notice so that brings us to the conversation about making the business case. What the business. Impact of the rollout of core web vitals. We know that some of our clients are having a pretty easy time of getting the organization to focus on some of these court web vitals and with some of other clients or some other organizations. We've talked to. They've had to beat the drums a little bit to get upper management or other departments to really pay attention because it takes a while to really diagnose problems with your poor web vitals not like updating a title tag. It's definitely more involved than that. When i think core web vitals. I know it's kind of in the seo bucket because google made the announcement and it definitely is going to impact your ranking. But it really shouldn't be thought of just benefiting seo a pleasing page experience at loads quickly response to input and doesn't visually jump around is good for everything. It's good for your conversions. It's good for your bounce rate. And if i'm in an oral at have to help make the case for allocating the appropriate vestment for working core web vitals. Those are the arguments. I would make and google's actually published quite a bit of studies as well as some of the science had behind the four webb vitals. One of the comments. I'm going to quote this directly out of the google article. We found that when a site needs the above thresholds in these thresholds. They given us for the poor web. Vitals users are twenty four percent less likely to abandon page loads by leaving the page before any content has been painted. So it's just not an seo thing to be good for your conversions. It's going to be good for people not abandoning shopping hearts. So i think that's the business case you really need to make mean yes. Of course we all want higher rankings but it is all about making the experience so good that all your other core. Kpi's are gonna benefit as well. And i think if you have a department they're gonna be your best friends in selling the impact of it. They're going to have very very similar goals to what you want to accomplish. So i would definitely get together with them to make sure that you explained from an seo perspective and most of the time they're going to agree with you and that you can join forces to sell it. I think the business impact here is. There are potential ranking impacts. That are going to be significant. That google has said a year in advance. These are the metrics that were going to be evaluating for some of our technical ranking factors. If this was not important. Google would not have given us so much. Lead time to be able to optimize our site for these metrics. They pulled his was going to happen. They provided the metrics. And now they're actually giving a general sense of the timeline of when it's going to roll out my feeling is that this is gonna be something that will heavily impact. Seo performance. I think that the case that you to have mentioned is hey. This is good for the overall experience. This is going to impact business performance and we should take it seriously because google has given the search community a long time a long leash a lot of leeway to be able to implement changes to optimize towards these metrics. Am i wrong to think that this is going to be a big deal when it rolls out of any sense of the type of impact that core web vitals might have when it actually comes alive to market well. Of course the big hundred thousand dollar question is how much impact will either good or poor core. We're vitals. i think it's important to just make the point. That content is still important. I mean if you're pages not a great match for the searcher intent and it doesn't satisfy the surge even if you have great core web vitals you still going to struggle but there are plenty of market and niches especially like an ecommerce where the differentiation between the different pages is not that big and at that point. Google's got to pick someone to rank in position one and if most the pages are just product pages and they're kind of similar you can bat that four by bills will have an impact on who makes it into position one.

"The with kevin mason story on the tv news the night. That was both heartbreaking and just frustrating was about a woman who got taken for thousands of dollars trying to buy pets online. She was trying to buy some little yorkie dogs or something like that and got taken by online scammers. They didn't really have the dogs but she answered some ad and they were wanting prepaid cash cards and she didn't see the red flags and now the seventy year old woman has spent thousands of dollars basically broke and what bothers me. More is with all the pets that are in shelters all the pets that are strays all the stories. We see online of all of these people hoarding pets. That people even go buy something online that she wanted to have this particular dogs so badly. She was willing to go into debt because she needed some companionship. It's kind of sad when you're that gullible to spend thousands of dollars on a scam but more importantly if you just need companionship you could have just gone down to your local animal shelter. It's a sad statement in many ways but buying pets. I really do have a hard time with that. I think that's just another thing we've got to figure out to fix.

Gaurav Afore Discusses Pre Seed Investing

"Grab welcome to the show. Thank you for having me your the co founder of a four capital which is an early stage investment company. What was the thesis when you started a four. Yeah so both. My co-founder automates banerjee have been investing in venture now for almost nine years. And we were both. I was at a fund Fund and one of the things we've noticed in the kind of four years these funds. Is that the goal posts for early. Stage founders shifting. So if you were trying to raise your first million to a million dollars pre product market fit. When you have little dune attraction. It was getting harder and harder to raise capital not from angels and scouts through definitely been obvious explosion of that which is great for the ecosystem but none of those investors usually lead the route. So if you were to go to a seed fund Fund for them to lead around price terms so on and so forth they were very often telling founders. Like i like what you're doing. I like your background but you're too early for us. Go get some traction go. Bill the A little bit more than we can invest so we saw this firsthand and we said allow there is a problem. There's a gap there because a personally just from our passion. It's like we love getting involved very early. In love helping founders. But we think there's a problem here to be solved so typical founders. When you see a problem and nobody solving it the best way to solve it is to go. Go after yourself. So my partner adamantly denied we left our previous funds and middle twenty sixteen we raise our first fund in the fall and the rest is history if you go back before that you were an early product manager for android. What was it like being google in the early days of android is a lot of fun like looking back. Obviously come a long way when i joined android in two thousand nine. It was like a skunkworks kind of projects on the side. I mean look at google building massive business right in an online ads in the early two thousands but it was pretty clear by. Oh seven ole that mobile was going to be the future not desktop so from google. It mobile was a potential existential threat. Right if apple was the dominant you know or the way that most people accessed mobile if that was apple or the carriers right if reisen etc like the own the customer relationship. That will be very problematic for google right. Because the reason google's been able to really flourishes. There is no sort of toll booth if you may for the internet and anybody can spend up a website and you can start to make money directly with consumers but mobile was potentially to be a different dynamic so when i joined android it doesn't nine. We essentially had a blank cheque right from the management at a google. Say look this is potentially going to be existential for the business. We need a horse in the race. Right we need to have something where we can compete with apple and have a dominant position or or at least one of tour to three key players so that was intended to mandate orchid blackberry. Back in the days so at started a company in mobile as well as building software for smartphone platforms. So i'd seen the movie before and really put frankly one foot in front of the other was a leap year for the next product line. That was our way to really put enjoyed map. Because when i joined had already launched a couple of phones but always considered december the fourth operating system after blackberry in iowa s maybe windows mobile as geeky operating system. Open source right. It's like on the fridge and we would really trying to show demonstrated the world that android has come a long way and it is a very formidable competitor to less so the next one was something google we paid for. That product developed by. Hec in that case. We work closely with the carriers to bring that product market which tried to sell the phone online ourselves. That did not work because we realized people still like to buy the phone in person. After the two years that i was there android went from when i joined less than a million total users. To by the time he left we were getting about a million new users day in that kind of scale for small. You only see a few places and in hindsight it's twenty twenty Bunch of things. We did right in the moment it was. We were just running around with their heads. Cut off and trying to figure out how to compete in a very fast growing world

Guest Teacher Janel Dyan on How to Invest in Womens Leadership in Your Company

"Today. We'll be talking about why in these unprecedented times. Women in leadership are essential to your company. Short-term growth and long term survival gender and racial equality are certainly hot topics of conversation right now but there are some organizations that are ahead of the curve and like me have been focusing on the equality of women and women of color for years and these are my clients women in leadership women on the rise women entrepreneurs and women at the helm of fortune five hundred companies today such so what lincoln and ford motor company and helping them grow as leaders. What i do best over the past seven years. I've worked with females of all colors and varied backgrounds from the bay area to new york. They are not only having a huge impact today but they are paving the way for all future female leaders industries historically dominated by men. And here's what i see. The companies who have made it a part of their core tenants to support an invest in diversity programs for the leadership development of women are the companies who are now today's industry leaders and it's not only for the products and services they provide but more importantly as a brand that people want to work for by from remained loyal to the shifted their measurable for success to include strong corporate culture of innovation employed growth customer loyalty and diverse leadership team who focus on purpose. And not just on the bottom line. They understand that their greatest assets are their employees and they have dedicated their efforts to be a brand that is people focused and purpose driven during our time together. Today we will focus on three lessons. You can walk away with first because women are. Today's largest and fastest growing global consumer companies need to shift their brand strategy to recognize the powerful role that women in leadership play driving economic growth. Next we'll take a look at why the greatest leaders are master storytellers and how powerful story can be and finally will cover some tips for building a culture with equality in its foundation including ways to establish promote an invest in fema leadership. So let's get started less than one. Women are the fastest growing global consumer and it's imperative that companies adjust according to. Brigitte brennan author. Why she buys and winning her business. Women make or heavily influence. Seventy to eighty percent of all purchases across all industries which means women are every company's largest target customer to truly capitalize on this customer trend companies. Must do a better job creating products and services with female buyers in mind. Companies must create a brand that women will buy from advocate foreign remain loyal to the companies who are most equipped to connect with women are led by other women and their leadership results have a positive impact. On company performance. The profits higher margins add more returns for investors leaders such as saffir cats of oracle and mary barra of general motors. it seems like commonsense. But it's actually not common practice. Facts are that only. Eighteen percent of global firms are led by women and according to this year's forbes annual report the number of women. Ceo's running fortune five hundred companies since it just seven point four percent so clearly. There are strong logical ethical and financial reasons to put more women at the helm according to study by mackenzie if we can close the gender gap by twenty twenty five twenty. Eight trillion dollars would be added to the global economy and to put that in perspective that is the size of the economies of the united states in china combined. Right now during covid and racial injustices at the forefront we find ourselves in a global economy with the future unknown. These challenges are now calling for new leadership no longer one of command and control but one of collaboration community one of the biggest actions that any leader can do right now is be transparent and empathetic to their team members and customers because anxiety and uncertainty are heightened during this time of crisis emotional connection on a basic human level between the leader and employee has never been more important than right now a recent study done in two thousand nineteen by mit sought to determine the makeup of the most effective leadership teams and those are the teams with the most women especially women of color as they are leaders who bring a deeper understanding of resilience. Women are also more likely to have empathy for those struggling to deal with change or lack of inclusion become role models for the change that they seek and are willing to share inspirational stories to motivate to embrace change they are in general more inclusive and collaborative making in leadership style which is a combination that continues to prove to be effective in getting companies to move faster in times of change lesson to the power of story. Why greatest leaders are master storytellers. We all love stories. In fact stories are what differentiates us as human beings. It is highly forged connections among each other and they'll trust as a community each stories an emotional journey that reinforces shared beliefs values and vision that we can all relate to from drawings on the walls of cave with stories of heroism folktales. That are full of more lessons to generational family tales. That remind us of our roots. Human beings need to feel that we are part of something greater than ourselves stories. Reminders that through tough times we will come out to the other side stronger wiser and more unified than ever stories. Bring us back to the beginning and remind us of who we are and what we do in stories creek clarity in our purpose and vision to get their. The greatest leaders are master storytellers. Simon sinek author of the power of y in infinite game says beautifully leaders aren't responsible for the results. Leaders are responsible for the people who are responsible for the results. It is during these times of crisis that provide an excellent opportunity for leaders to communicate stories of incredible vision for the future showing empathy advising with humility and providing optimism. For what lies ahead. They also understand marketing at its core is simply about storytelling. and it is the stories. They choose to tell that can differentiate brand as an industry leader communicating the values of the brand with the product and services they sell. I mean who wasn't choked up watching google's tearjerking super bowl ad of a love story that began with a simple question how not to forget. So tying back to what we learn in less than one about women being the largest and fastest growing global consumer with the understanding that stories have power companies must give their products and services a story that women now can relate to and what better way to do that than with women at the helm leading the way finally lesson three building corporate culture with gender equality in its foundation companies with strong female leadership such as new york stock exchange. Pwg and google are continuing to create more equitable inclusive and fulfilling workplaces for all women and the investments are already proving to return tenfold to their bottom line.

"Larry King has died. He was 87 in a career that spanned 60 years. Larry King interviewed just about everybody. Reporter Jeff Lunden has this appreciation. With his trademark suspenders and his deep baritone voice tinged with a Brooklyn accent. Larry King spoke with Presidents George Bush is our honored guest for the full hour. Next on Larry King Live World leaders Moammar Qaddafi. The leader of the nation of Libya, celebrities, the brilliant Barbra Streisand, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes and on and on and on. I'm always engrossed in the guest. Larry King spoke with Jesse Thorn on the turnaround podcast in 2017. I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, So I guess I'm better every day at learning. The Brooklyn born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity when we would go to dodge it. All my friends wanted autographs at the injury. I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players is they're going to their cars asking questions. Why'd you bunt? Why they do this in the third inning. My curiosity is still insatiable. King began his career is a DJ in Miami, and it's where he got his name is well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger was too ethnic. He chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper. By the late 19 seventies, King had an overnight talk show on national radio. Then the 1985 Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author. Bill Carter, who's a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect. Picking up something like Larry King may love sense because he had Establish himself kind of as a guy who could get big guests. They could have big names and promoted and became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup, and King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lob softball questions. It is guests. His strategy was I'm never gonna make the guests uncomfortable. And that means not only will they come back, but they'll tell their friends. He won't ask you about that ugly divorce of yours. You know, he'll ask you about your favorite movie, so he didn't challenge people, But he did get information. He was pretty good at that, like when he talked with ex President Richard Nixon. Well, I don't want to dwell in the Watergate thing that's been covered so well. But some personal things when you drive by Those collections of buildings. The hotel the two apartment houses the office building, You feel weird, funny. No, I never give it a thought. Never given a thought. Never given a thought. That's one place where you just don't look back. As far as Watergate is. I know you don't look up at the buildings themselves. Not at all. Not a matter of fact, I've never been in the Watergate. Larry King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews, the less I know. Better Now, That sounds strange to people. Like If you wrote a book. I wouldn't read the book for interview do because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book, but King knew the national zeitgeist. He covered the first O. J. Simpson trial every night, says Bill Carter. He basically started the cable monomania move. We're going to just cover this story. That's it In a way. It was perfect for life because it was celebrity oriented. It was in the news, but it was not political. Ultimately, CNN canceled King show because it wasn't political competition from Fox and MSNBC took its toll on the ratings. But King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had Quinn couple bypass surgery after a massive heart attack, and King took his talk show to streaming video and kept on working for NPR news. I'm Jeff Lunden in New York.

"Does he says was born in santiago cuba rich powerful family. He loves to joke about it on old talk shows here. He is on the tonight show with johnny carson. My father was the mayor of my hometown. My uncle was chief of police. We had that town prewar really. My great grandfather was appointed mayor of my hometown by queen. Isabella way gone. I'm sure is that always makes you laugh. But there was a revolution not the castro one the one before that and the arneses fled to miami. Miami in the thirties is growing hugely and a young desi tries his hand at theatre and music and movies. Eventually he becomes a popular bandleader as well. This is the preview of a new ban. And we're confident that in a very short time you'll be hearing a lot more about desi arnez and his orchestra not just hearing about them dancing to them. Desi arnez started the craze of the congo line. Boop boop boop of robert. This is a scene from the movie called. Too many girls in the ad for it literally goes to many girls film on the arcadio sound lot in nineteen forty and in this same a young gorgeous desi arnez is leading a line of dancers to the congo. Now robert i do not wanna overestimate how crazy nuts. This scene is. It looks like i dunno. Imagine a halftime super bowl. Dance number with congas fire jugglers trapeze artists studying. There's no such thing as too many congolese. now now. this is just the movie version. In our memoir. He talks about how he would be playing a gig and how a conga line with breakout out and go through eight or nine different clubs in south beach with a line stretching for blocks and blocks the movie too. Many girls is notable for another fact. A co starred this up and coming red-headed comedian lucille ball. Desi by the way didn't get the girl in the picture he's as the eye candy.

That's two people in love. Did they wanted to do. And this was pretty new at the time a television show. Now i wanna take a moment to tell you what. Tv was like before. I love lucy. It was pretty close to people being just a cardboard box with a cutout they do little plays facing one camera and at the time most television shows were live and broadcasts from new york so tv was sort of like radio but with pictures and just as ephemeral they had this technology called kinase co which was a way of sort of recording a video screen and it looked terrible. Grainy and most importantly it didn't last they used to record the shows alive in new york and then replay them via kim scope three hours later in california could barely see it on tiny. Tv sets and then it would disappear but doesn't really wanted to capture the magic from the movies they had done. They wanted to make tv shows as good as a hollywood movie and they didn't wanna move to new york but i they had to convince the t. v. executives. This is not going to surprise you but there were no interracial couples on tv. In the nineteen fifties. Lucille ball had a popular radio. Show with a white actor playing her husband and as deputy tells it the tv execs. Were like wait. A minute why you do a tv show with lucy and that guy. The husband and the radio show was richer then was a tall blonde brew. I vice president of a bank or sometimes you'll be able to get away with that part you know.

Professional video-gamer, 25, hangs up controller over thumb injury

"A top video gamer has been forced to retire at age. Twenty five because of a thumb injury. That's very early to retire from anything. Twenty five years old. But you imagine he's probably been playing video games for twenty four and a half years. Correct these dudes just come out of the womb looking for a controller. Ready to play games. Kids start early. This guy's name. Is thomas zuma papa arado. He says he's stepping back from professional gaming due to injuries. I've never heard of this guy. I don't do gamer stories. I don't really follow gamers. But i thought hey. Let's do a gamer story on weird news for one time now. I think i covered video game a few months ago as as well so it says here. The twenty five year olds zuma will stop competing for the foreseeable future because playing through the pain in in his hand just isn't possible anymore. Here's a quote from zuma. It breaks my heart to step away from a game. I put my heart and soul into every single day for eight years. I tell you. He said that on his twitter account going through that process. You know getting healthy again was one of the hardest things i ever had to do. Both and mentally which led to a lot of stress and anxiety. I needed surgeries. I've been struggling with injuries. It's the hardest thing ever. Yes got wrist thumb problems a makes this makes it tough to compete against the best players in the world. I don't enjoy competing. When i can't be the zuma everyone knows and loves and and feel like it's not fair to myself or to or to my team to go through all that again potentially causing more damage to my hand been grateful to have had a very long playing career. Actually i've met so many amazing people through e sports and have made so many friendships continue to cherish for the rest of my life. Sure i can't use my opposable thumbs. Which really is the thing that distinguishes us most from the other mammals and it really allows us to live in life. But you know what this just some things. You gotta sacrifice when you want to be a very good gamer. I can't pick up anything now. I can't eat a twinkie. i just can't have. You should see me and peel an orange. It's just terrible thankfully. I've made enough money in east sports to hire somebody that appeal on my oranges for me. That's what's going on here. And i cannot hitchhike because i can't raise my thumb hitchhike. You think that's an old school thing that no one does anymore. Well i'll tell you people do it. People do it sometimes. You need a ride okay. As always only half of that quote was correct. I just can't take this guy so seriously. I feel bad you know. He's he can't play video games again. Know get a real job. Now just go and get a real job like the rest of us now zuma welcome to reality sir although he probably has made so much money playing video games these east sports. If you're very good at it you can make so much money from what i understand. He probably never has to work a day in his life ever again. He probably has enough money to buy biotic thumbs and fingers to replace his regular gidgets. I'd imagine Do they do that yet can you. Can you get like a thumb plant thumb implant like a robotics. Thumb seems seems possible. I mean if you if you can install a vagina. why can't you get a robot thumb. I feel like now it mentions at the end of the article that the video game that zuma most successful ad and has to retire from his call of duty which is a first person shooter. Game that i used to play along with black ops. I really enjoyed those games and played them for quite some time. But i had to stop. Because i had this moment of realization word. I looked in my xbox and you can see how many hours of accrued video game time you've been playing and it was like almost eight hundred hours and i was like. Wow what a loser i was like. I gotta get my life together. One eight hundred hours. What does that like. Several months wasted playing these games. It was it was a real sobering moment. I got rid of my xbox and now you know now i record a podcast in a closet so you know sometimes you just got to pull yourselves up from your bootstraps and just you know. Be successful like you know like me.

Doug Knust on using life to influence your book

"Doug welcome back. Once again, since this is focused for writers. Tell us a little bit about the software and the services that you used when you were writing a book. Well, I I happened upon a r e g just I'm not really sure I probably just did a search and found it and and I use that actually as the the writing tool because I was able to then publish in the in the in the different formats that I needed to pass it on to Amazon for the self-published to self-publishing really Kindle Direct publishing. I mentioned to you earlier. I used my my daughter-in-law was my editor. My son was my graphic artist. And the rest of it was kind of just you know, she was string stuff. Nothing fancy Steven dead. Okay nice, but that's great because you can make a good quality product. Even if you're not spending thousands of dollars exactly you do. I mean, you don't even need a word processor. It's all online if that's what the way you want to do it if you're familiar with if you're comfortable with a word processor or what are I'm sure that works just fine. But God, yeah, you you don't even need the word processor, right? So when you we were talking a little bit about marketing you mentioned your target audience and I loved that because I mentioned may also do middle grade fiction and it is difficult because you want to write a book and you want to give it to the seventh and eighth graders, but they are not the ones buying it. The parents are the ones buying it and the teachers the and you mentioned grandparents that you get a lot grandparents. So what are you doing to try and reach that audience? I've had I've had pretty good success targeting grandparents on Facebook. And I you know being a being a car dealer and I'm doing a little marketing doing a little marketing. I have I I know that that demographic uses Facebook and especially, you know, the last six weeks during the Christmas season that was that was really surprisingly successful for me. I've used some of the Amazon ads kind of targeting some books that had the same subject matter had some reasonable success there as well. And then you know, I I've given a choice of books. I put a little card in there asking people to go online and and give me a review and to recommend it and you know, it's the word of mouth is still a pretty dog. Good way to advertise. Yes. And so I take it even though you were on Amazon that you actually probably sell quite a few printed books. Yeah, the vast majority of my books are printed of the sales are printed books and I think again when you think about the the target end reader off the 6th seventh and eighth grade boy, not many of them are running around with an electronic reader. Most of them are if they're going to read it. I think they're going to read the whole paper version of the book agreed.

A thirteen year old girl stumbled into a police station in the neighborhood of sim shaw shui. She was wild-eyed and shrieking the police initially thought that she could have been the victim of a crime but she's shocked officers by telling them that she was being haunted by a ghost. They laughed at the girl and started to lecture her about wasting their time believing her to be either mentally ill. The victim of a realistic nightmares were ultimately on drugs. All thong was already known to the police. Now this is actually not her real name. This is the name later assigned to her. So this is an alias. Even at thirteen years old she already had a record having run away from home and then publicly living with known gang members and drug dealers so she was not in a good spot already at thirteen. The girl then began to describe in vivid detail. How she her boyfriend and two other men mercilessly tortured a woman to death and the police still didn't believe it and that's possibly because nine thousand nine hundred nine hong kong's homicide rate was just one point two three per one hundred thousand people. It was literally one of the safest large cities in the entire world not to put that in perspective in one thousand nine hundred nine. New york city's homicide rate was nine point zero three hong kong one point two three new york city nine point zero three crazy high now. Hearing graphic details involving a young woman being bound by electrical wire and tortured to death over a month shock the officers and they just didn't believe her story but they took down the details a follow up on it later. Desperate to be believed. The girl demanded that they follow her to the apartment or the woman's remains were located and they reluctantly agreed. Police followed girl to her. Boyfriend's apartment. Apartment number thirty one on granville road. In kowloon the boyfriend's name chan men lock a mid level drug dealer gang member as soon as the police approach the door. They knew that something was gravely wrong. The sweet smell of decay was overpowering. The injured the apartment. It was littered with trash drug paraphernalia and splattered with feces and blood. The tile flooring was crumbling and difficult to walk on and peppering the apartment was hello kitty memorabilia. Stuffed animals towels cutlery sheets decorative blades pillows curtains and toys and this was a luxury apartment building so the state of this apartment was very much not indicative of off on immediately. Walk them to the refrigerator where they discovered muscle tissue and internal organs neatly packed in plastic bags in organized on the shelves before the officers could overcome that shock. She diverted their attention to a bloodied mermaid. Hello kitty doll. That was on top of a stained mattress on the ground. After a quick examination. It was clear that something was in sight of it. After opening up a series of stitches inside the head of the doll they discovered a human skull. The young girl admitted that the ped- belongs to twenty-three-year-old missing nightclub hostess. Fan men yea- but age twenty fan man. Yee had led a very tumultuous sad calamitous life born into extreme poverty. She was abandoned by her parents left to fend for herself.

Turn to sex work to pay for her deepening drug habit and eventually worked in the brothels of kowloon she was repeatedly sexually physically and mentally abused by both our clients and bosses pure almost always members of notorious hong kong triads and a trio. That is more or less just a criminal family or criminal organization as it were.

"Pandemic" Pet Adoption - Always Great No Matter When It Happens

"I was in a new apartment in a new city after just having broken up with a partner of ten years. I didn't leave my home. I had very little outside contact with anybody. Virtual or otherwise. I was all alone for the first time a very long time. I became even more introvert than i'd ever been before. Feeling sadness sorrow and kind of use on a daily basis. Let me just say that. I am inherently a cat person. But i was compelled to do everything the opposite way of. How about my life up until that point. The all quote. Nothing is working this way. So i'll do it the opposite and see what happens. It can't get much worse in quote. That was my line and my way of thinking at that time. We'll in october of two thousand eighteen. My precious cat when he had just passed away. It was very sad. And so i thought briefly about waiting on getting another pet altogether. Maybe i'll just wait. It was just so painful to imagine going through the worry and commitment. And plus i had just start to travel a little bit more but somehow i didn't dismiss it as the weeks went by. I saw an ad on pet finder dot com for a dog named frank and the ad it stayed that frank was quote body sensitive in quote in other words he was a biter. But guess what that did not deter me. As i read the ad i learnt that he had been in a few bad homes been rejected and returned to the shelter. But the ad also said that wants the bonding phase was established. He'd be a companion for life. I was intrigued as ended up. I wouldn't be all alone for the rest of my life. Like i thought i would. Happy ending for franken me for sure. But here's another pet story. That's just as cool on. Us news and world report. I found this doctor. Liz dare a family medicine. Physician in western massachusetts had wanted to adopt a dog but she hadn't quite found the right time to do it with work travel and other commitments. They're just never seemed to be a great time to adopt a pet and her two cats kept her company. Well enough with fewer knees dog. And isn't that the truth. But in mid-march the world changed when the coronavirus pandemic was declared overnight workplaces closed and like many other people. Liz began working from home. A lot offering visits with patients. Virtually from their homes. Having a dog would help stave off some of the isolation that accompanied the radical change and it is radical in lifestyle so many of us have had to cope with since the coronavirus pandemic began. She says i'm single. And i live by myself so it felt like a really right time for me. Well according to its july seventeenth twenty twenty covid nineteen impact report. The number of dogs and cat adoptions. Were actually down. Twenty seven percent when compared to the same time period a year ago. but foster's were up nine percent. Many states have seen a significant decline in the number of animals. Entering the shelters as volunteers observed stay at home orders but the increase and fosters suggests that more people are willing to take on sick or older pets that might otherwise not have found a safe home to call their own for any period of time because this is an ever changing situation and each shelter faces unique challenges adoption and fostering statistics will vary at any given time. It's so obvious. But there's no doubt that the response from community residents across the nation to support their local shelters by fostering vulnerable animals has been enormous and unprecedented. And isn't that the coolest thing well for liz. The rush to adopt meant. She had to be patient to find her pandemic pet orla name eventually. She connected with a shelter and connecticut right here where i am that brings dogs up from the southern united states. So that's how. She found sophie a two year. Old thirty pound terrier boxer mix. She's chestnut brown with white around her face and white paws and she's got spots running down her chest. She sounds adorable and she is and sweet and she's a very low key dog. I needed to find a dog. She says that was going to get along well with my two cats and as it turns out. Sophia's very good around the cats. Who are still a little freaked out by her. Well let me just tell. This story has a great ending to. She brought sophie home of month ago. They're still adjusting to the new routine. She's totally fallen in love with this dog. So after those two stories. My story about frank and liz's story about sophie. Do you even need to hear the bullet point benefits for adopting a pet. No well here. They are anyway well. They offer companionship. We know that this is important. If like myself you live alone before. I adopted frank who is a dachshund maltese mixed breed. I had no one to look forward to seeing no one to share my love with and no one that needed me and there is something to be said about the human to dog touch. That feels so good. Well provides a purpose to the sense of purpose. Everybody needs pet. Ownership is an important responsibility and one that can be a powerful antidote to depression and anxiety. There are more opportunities for exercise to well this time to walk. Frank during the lockdown played an important role in my wellbeing and his two dogs need to be walked and katz needs to be played with and there is no doubt that these activities with your pet is crucial to your physical wellbeing. as well. as there's getting dose of fresh air is important for both of you. Also it provides a reason to go outside smelled air and be alone with your thoughts. That's right. I said alone because when you're outside there's so much to see and you're using all your senses of very good thing and there's good medical news two that's right. Having a pet can reduce blood pressure the center for disease control and prevention the cdc reports that pet ownership can be a key to reducing stress cholesterol and triglycerides levels. All things that we need to do to be healthy and you know what there doesn't even have to be at pandemic for you to adopt a pet but you can't anyway. It's a good excuse if you need one. If you need a laugh live alone. Want to potentially meet other like-minded pet owners be more peaceful and happier and calmer. This is something to really consider. I know you know this. It's not only you but that furry pet that just may need you as much as you need them. Still a cat person. But i adore my frankie.

Why everyone suddenly switched to Signal

"Recode. Ronnie mola's explain. Hey ronnie why is signal so popular right now. Okay there's there's three reasons. what's app. It's facebook competitor. another encrypted messaging app has changed. Its privacy policy upsetting people the capital riots usually after any sort of social unrest people. Download this app and then finally elon. Musk the up. The richest man in the world now tweeted about it. He said you signal toured. Yeah that really made a lot of people download it. In fact on friday signal went down because so many people signed up. So let's let's each of those. So you mentioned a privacy. Update at whatsapp right. Which is the massively popular. Messaging service owned by facebook very popular overseas. What did what's app change about. Its privacy policy so it just changed some language that made people think that you were going to have to share your contacts and some other information with facebook. They came back and said that. That's not actually what the language meant but people widely interpreted to be that okay so actually the privacy policy. Update doesn't look to be that bad but everyone thinks that it's bad people aren't going dig into the details. Yeah yeah and i. It's just it's owned by facebook. So i feel like that's like enough for some people. Yeah a signal different from what's up when it comes to privacy. They're not that different. In the sense that they're both end to end encrypted that means that it's encrypted on both sides and you know it's supposed to if they interceptor message. It's supposed to look like garbled text. The difference is the ownership. I think one's owned by facebook and one's own by a nonprofit that's committed not selling it to a big tech company. Actually what's up spit in sharing your data with facebook since two thousand sixteen. But it's just a pretty small amount. It's just your phone number. Everyone's sort of mad about this privacy update but it actually doesn't mean you're gonna share anything more with facebook but since so many people misinterpreted the privacy update the company said. They were going to push it back till may and what's up is owned by facebook writes. A lot of this is about perception. Even if whatsapp is encrypted also it could just be seen as less secure. Yeah and it's not hard to imagine that facebook would like to eventually make some money off of it and you know incorporate some of its information into its ad network and is signal going to be a nonprofit for forever. I mean what's up was an independent company to at one point and bright and then it got bought by facebook and suddenly all these people using facebook product could the same fate come for signal That's what the the the people who founded signals say. They say because it's a nonprofit. They can't sell to one of the big tech companies. You know it just makes it a little harder less likely And and they just don't want to that's like built into the ethos of signal one of the founders actually is also the founder of what's up it was sort of a messy breakup with facebook He left after facebook. Bought whatsapp and around the same time started working with signal And how big a deal. You think the capital riots. Where you mentioned those earlier. Can you just walk me through the logic here on why the riots might explain why more and more contacts of mine or yours or listeners might be joining signaled first place. So it's hard to know for sure if you know people who are involved in the capital riots are now signal users. But every time there's been sort of the perception of social or political unrest signal sees a lot of downloads when donald trump was elected. A lot of people downloaded the app again. The black lives matter protests this summer. A ton of people downloaded it. The idea is that if you're doing something that could even be perceived as illegal or if you're just worried about the government or things like that you want an app where you feel like you're communications or so you don't know for sure that people who maybe have been d platform from a bunch of social media companies need a different way to communicate but i would speculate that has to be the case in some instances so apps like parlor and telegram have been linked to the capital riots our list in the aftermath account the riots. More more folks are flocking to them has signal had any of the same sort of concerns. I know obviously private platforms can be used for good and for evil and for people who are joining signal for its privacy protections. That can be abused right. I'm i'm curious. If signal has had any similar troubles the concern is certainly there but the nature of a an encrypted app like signal means that we don't really know Have been subpoenaed before for a trial and they were only able to turn over like very little information about the user sorta by one. They started their account in the last time. They were on the account So they say that in the event of law enforcement wanting access they wouldn't really be able to give that much

Hi-Performance Heritage - 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona

"This week's projet carve. The week was the nineteen sixty nine. Dodge dart posted on the moped hunter. Facebook page on tuesday january fifth at nine a. m. let's read the ad nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine dodge dart sixteen thousand five hundred dollars. Nineteen sixty nine. Dodge dart very well built four forty. Tci seven twenty seven dana sixty with four fifty six in spool fiberglass front rear deck lead from bumper. Just put down the direct floor. Liner front end has been completely rebuilt. Everything has been changed including the torsion bars retires or hoosiers that don't have fifty miles on them. Amnesty distributors six. Al box brand new holly xp carb too much to list completely rewired with ron. Francis wiring also have the box with the extra wiring for other applications plus instructions also frontiers new and converted over to kelsey hayes. Four piston calipers shocks in front or new shocks rear. Our new drag shocks car is very fast. Title status is clean. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking here he goes again with another dart drag car. And you're right. I can't help that. I love dodge darts and i can't help that. I love drag car projects. They're just cool. I really do enjoy them. I think they're awesome. And i think that great project cars and this car just happens to be another dart. The reason why. I like this one so much is because it's pretty much ready to go to me. It looks like it just needs a few finishing touches and you're off to the races. I should say that like with any race car project. You'd go through this thing from top to bottom. But just based on what i see. I think it's a great candidate for a drag car project especially at under twenty grand. I mean this thing sitting sixteen five. I think there might be a little bit of room but you know just looking at the car and comparing it to other things that i've seen out there for maybe half the price the seems like a good bye. I will say this though. It may be kind of a handful on the street. And that's only because of the spool and the rear end ratio for those of you. That don't know a spool is a fully locked rear diff unlike locking diff the school locked at all times. So when you're turning you're gonna feel the rear end grabbing and gripping the road because the wheels will be unnaturally turning at the same rate of speed so it's kind of impractical parking taking turns and stuff. It might feel a little bit weird almost like if you're a four wheel drive on the street you know and you crank the wheel all the way and you try to turn. You're gonna feel that rear end like skipping almost The other issue that i saw was the four fifty six years. I think it would be really fun. Obviously light to light on the street. But i'd imagine if you're on the freeway a lot of could be an issue but that said you know a lot of people run these gears all the time even on the street so i guess it just depends on the type of driving. You'll be doing and if you're willing to put up with it it might be okay if you only take the car out occasionally on the streets but at sixteen thousand five hundred you have a great headstart to a fun strip car. That can possibly be driven on the street. It's a big lakhdar with some bigs and littles also has what looks to be centerline. Auto drags on it. So that's that's a plus in my book. I love those wheels. So big and little auto drags cool in my book. It's gotta side exit exhaust aluminum radiator. It's got a nice racing shift in it. Some cheap racing seats grant steering wheel. You know this things got some potential you know does it have its flaws sher- but we can work around those and we can take this platform as you get it and then make it your own. You know there's still room to improve and you know that's sure to tickle anymore. Part theseus fancy especially mind the thing even has really bars too so if you did drive it on the street the only addition to make it even more intimidating would probably be a parachute but discards cool has a ton of potential and it sure to turn heads on both the track and the street got nice orange paint a black bumble bee stripe. It's got a giant hood scoop on the front like the old school. I don't know what you call it like a pro street hood scoop. I guess I think that's the word i'm looking for. I think that's the description i can give. But it's not the typical hood that i would like to see on a mo- par but i guess it works. I like hemi hood scoops or six. Pack hood scoops. I think those are cool But it's got four. It's got the fiber last trunk so it's got four pins on that to hold it down Like i said it's got the whealy bars so cut that bad ass aesthetic to

The Power Of Poetry

"So blake auden welcome. Schmancy the ios. Thank you so much for coming on. Thank you very much for having me poetry. I'm very excited to talking poetry. I feel like. I haven't been waiting enough poetry but anyway tennis about yours and when you started rising yeah absolutely. I started writing when i was quite young. Mark mark fathers in the military. And so i grew up with wolf poetry and i i just became fascinated by it by its ability to convey so really strong and deep emotions. And so i've been reading in on doubling for twenty two years and by then even really taking it seriously for about two years. I sat my instagram account february. Twenty nineteen ammon dots. When i saw really started trying to make him a career. What kind of reaction have you had on instagram. And in general in the wo t o poetry. It's been Sa- brady surprising. If i'm going to start you know. I suppose you never you stop these things in the The other people will enjoy them and monette may view get. Some read was awesome. Nice comments. But i i've been completely blown away by by how people have responded to it. People say to me with the time that my poetry helps them to process emotions and mental health issues heartbreaking loss and not every time i hear it it means you actually well to me. I think i've been very lucky in that. Regard does depends in the first place to help you with that mental health. Stuff will just generally kind of the going on at the moment. Yeah i think it does. I mean visit certain certainly kasichs about about writing. I think it's about so of all forces you to organize your emotions and kind of give them a gram to to stand on and on. I think that about price s helps you come to terms with what you might be experiencing the state of the world with the mainland or whatever it might be and that's the real payoff. It's is seeing other people react to it and particularly people fail like a con thy kalis how feeding or they struggled to talk about it and would just you know they put it into words. They often tell me that. I'm doing that for them. And for me back only makes make like whatever i go through. It's worth it. Because i know i'll be out of tune into something that helps someone else. Can we talk about your own experiences of mental health. Because i know that you've spoken a bit about your experience of anxiety. Windy anxiety can stopped fear. In what what does that mean fee. So i have been anxious to some degree harming mike my life when i was a kid i remember i and i think a lot of this comes from having a dot in the military and to worry incessantly. If you know if my mum was late from to pick me up from the childminders from school. I would immediately stop in. Kenosha must have been in a car crash or something awful happened. And i remember at a young age On the other night. Seven or eight. And when i was in bed if i if i heard the front door i would assume that must be my my parents leaving to run away or something. Say i've always had know. Not kind of always worried. Probably unnecessarily more than an average kid should they and bet ahsan ads and probably in the last. Ten years is gotten progressively worse. And to the point where. I get anxious about we'll seemingly nothing you know. I caught composting. Garon on what is the might be causing it so it's been something i've struggled with for a long time now. So what if you saw this helps and dealing with so i mean writing is certainly one of them off in general. I'm a musician. As while i have a degree in music so i always turn to to the to try and make sense of this stuff that otherwise. I've tried everything. I've been to therapy. Which didn't help necessarily in lessening not. But it did help me understand the recall of it and i'm wear these things might have come from which was i mean. It was fascinating if nothing else am. I meditate every day dot starts really helpful and breathing exercises or this kind of stuff but i think the me the radi bake change came so i noticed probably two years ago you the anxiety was slowly taking lots of things away from eisai stopped performing music. I socialize less and less and i didn't. I hadn't been on holiday a about fifteen years at that point and i was i was essentially just spending everyday in the house too too scared of a panic attack to go and do anything. I found that the anxiety. Just find new things to make you anxious about if you if you remove or the sunny mike experience. He probably removed the trigger. It would just got replaced by something else so suddenly watching films with make anxious whereas it didn't before and so i saw you know what it's going to make me on kisses anyway then as just do i want so i started. I started writing about it. And i- i characterize anxieties wolf in my writing something that you know stokes me so i got tattooed quite large on the back of my left hung where i can see every day and not kind of reminds me the you know what enough is enough. I'm just gonna do the things and if the makes me anxious he makes me unctuous fiber panic attack panic attack very they can do about it so i'm just gonna down and live my life and oddly enough thought has really helped. The last two years have been much better.

"Where georgia was being banned You wouldn't make a movie there. You wouldn't travel there. Wouldn't have conference there and look how fast that around interesting times Let's shift onto the next topic for this ad chatter and shift coast move over to los angeles and what's happening over. There is Grinding halt to production which includes films and commercials and si- egg after is urging everyone to stay home because los angeles not sure how this happened but he became the epicenter one of the greatest epicenters of the pandemic and so this is a real problem for our industry and and the entertainment industry. Yeah absolutely The situation in la right now is we're recording this. It's pretty dire Lot of hospitals are just overcapacity and new cases are surging As far as you know one of the things we we tend to overlook. Is that when we think about hollywood we think about movie stars and folks who make millions and millions of dollars but most of the people who work in tv and film production. Don't make that kind of money. Even the members of sag and after the actors they had the average actor in those you know barely gets by You know there are a whole level of superstars but people who work on movie sets. Don't make a lot of money. And so it's a huge industry that's grinding to a halt once again and that hurts a lot of working people it hurts in so many ways and i'm reading on variety the article about it and it says in here that the current testing positivity rate stands at eighteen point four percent in los angeles that lets twenty percent. It's insane it's insane and so the advertising industry again has to As we still are mostly working from home has to find ways to either delay productions or adapt productions to Institute sting things that are a little more manageable and of course it's a it's a big deal for the folks who are working on the longer form movies and shows crazy days Let's shift onto our next topic Amil cover a few topics that relate to the riots at the capitol and look at this through our you know the larger lands but also through our lands. Our industry lands. What does it mean for brands. What does it mean for advertisers. And right away with something like this happens it means. Let's stop spending money in media channels where these horrible images in news stories run brands. Don't wanna be advertising next to that type of content That is so unbelievably out of control. So bunch of brands. Have you know stop spending so there again. Out of the hundred things that are wrong with this story Business grants to a hall right and this is a double edged sword because if you pause spending on mainstream news sites you really cut off..

I wonder if the fact that he was not the producer meant and maybe dick ebersol didn't have the same kind of sensibility is almost like going to a to an eight. An ad agency where. There's more of an account focused than a creative focus. Was there somebody with comedy vision. That made you missed out on. Yes yes and again. There's a thousand ways to tell the story. This is a pretty good narrative right here. We call dick ebersol. The george steinbrenner of comedy. He didn't really know what was funny. But new and And he knew how to get him and he knew how to hire me and he did what needed to be done. The retaining of eddie murphy keeping eddie happy joe piscopo bringing in billy crystal. He knew exactly how to produce it but he didn't know instinctively how to keep the show. Funny himself we're lauren does ron. I feel learn. Michael's that i feel like he has a sense of everybody on the show and they're are in terms of where they need to be where they've been where they can go. That wasn't there that i it's interesting. That's just an interesting point because there are a lot of creative folks. I guess that in the ad business who had very similar experiences if they don't get that support if they don't get that mentorship if they don't kind of jet that creative vision they dope always realize their full potential crack. And you know it one thing. I learned listening to your podcast last week. You had one saturday night. Live folks can casualty on their. You worked another fella. Who was on the show when you were there with. Larry david later and i didn't know that i think i knew he was. He might have been there now. There is a perfect example. I'm never throwing anybody under the bus. Everybody did what they do. The best they know how to do it. But here's larry david a genius and believe me. He was a genius then too and he was riding weird esoteric but brilliantly funny pieces but they weren't exactly classic snl and they weren't at all clapped and dick was looking for classic. Is this snl funny. He would write small esoteric pieces weird little arguments between architects arguing where the elevator operators chair should go in a in a new elevated. I mean you can now. That we know larry david you go. Oh my god that might have been brilliant but at the time it was just this weird little thing. That was a soft piece so he didn't get anything on the air. Why how larry. David got nothing on the air and he could have said at the end of that well on done with tv..

"Walk. I wanna laugh out loud. But i don't find it funny because we have gas in my car so it drives and we'd like to have you know heat in our home when it's cold and so on and i wonder if these activists to yet i mean we're you know we are not as a society of the point where we can give up fossil fuels for renewable energy completely Some cities are trying it. Some some countries are attempting it. But we're not there yet and so you know there's a little bit of a little bit of a double standard there. And as i believe the president of the oil and gas company pointed out to the ceo of the north face. The north face is dependent on fuels or its customers are dependent on fossil fuels to pursue their adventures. And they're happy time so you know it's it's a complicated issue I know that Our friend dr deborah morris in the university of is working on a book about advertising marketing in the New age of climate change. She probably has a lot to say about this but I think the bottom line is that You know we need as an industry to determine whether we're going to go forward with These types of clients. I'm not sure that that employees or ceos Have you know a lot of say in all of this Because people you know. Oil and gas companies have the the ability to advertise just like everybody else but i really wish the advertising and marketing industries. Npr firms would turn their attention to renewable energies. And you know we are the industry that told people to start drinking orange juice in the morning. You know we invented coca cola's version of santa claus. We can change behavior if we want to. And i don't think vilifying oil and gas companies is the way to do it. Dan that's wisdom. You're kicking it kicking the this. The man adam chief executive officer of in a vaccine. He wrote a letter to the to the head of the chief. Executive of face pointing out that their products are made of petroleum. What do you think fleece of right. So are the activists going to make north face change their production quality. Where does this end in. The answer is it doesn't. It's just a lot of virtue signal in various it's a level of silliness. That's why i said i'd like to laugh. You nailed it. Thank you dan. Let's work together to move the needle and get high speed trains solar and wind running this nation. Yeah we are. Our industry can be a force for good without having to vilify the people who are currently making their livelihoods in a different way. And i there's just not a lot of sexy attention in that a man.

"That's high energy yeah. It's a lot of fun. It is Those are really in alaska airlines employees. Doing it. It's a it's a well known. Track men without hats and safety dances for folks of a certain generation ru you know it's a it's an it's memorable so there's a lot of built in A little borrowed interests there. But that helps you latch onto it. And it's a subject that despite the fact that there is a vaccine on the horizon travel has been decimated and the airline industry has been decimated and passengers need to be reassured that there are safe ways to travel even right now and alaska is trying to take the lead in that understand that you flew alaska to hawaii i did i will confess that we kept it on the down low but we went For a few days last week and middle seats are not being sold right now. So there's a little bit of social distancing the planes were you know that that puts the plane in about sixty seventy percent full. But everybody's wearing a mask. And i think it's policy at alaska airlines that you have to wear one or you don't get to fly again and so as long as everybody plays by the rules. It's a fairly safe way to travel. We all want it to work I certainly want to fly again. i haven't This year But i'm glad that you're doing it safely and i think this commercial is really a smile. Inducing you know. Dan salons sing along commercial. And i like commercials that entertain. I mean you know. In recent years a lot of airlines including alaska and deltas also have done the on once you get on board the safe the The out on the belt and in the life jacket and all that and they've made a lot of fun videos of for people who already on the plane. This one is a commercial is a little bit different because You know it's out before you fly so you know. Giving people smiles absolutely what the travel industry needs to do right now and also make them feel better and about flying and travelling That it's going to be safe to do indeed indeed That your good hands when you're in the air in the airport moving on dan Every year google does their year in search at this year. It's three minutes long. So i do not wanna play. All three minutes will put this up on apple dot com. These spots in an can go there and hear the podcast. Look at these spots. What i will do is play a bit of it and then cut. We'll discuss the most human trait is to want to know why and in a year that tested everyone around the world. Why was searched more than the spread of the corona virus has policy significant milestone in what we didn't find all the answers. We kept asking some questions. Inspired you others excitement. Yes yes. I don't know what an improper fractions teachers and made a billion-dollar future should make a billion dollars. I agree with that So why why is the big search. This year of course is because why are we going through this. Why can't we go outside and see our friends and family. Why can't we traveled as right right. It's an incredibly. it's incredibly. Well done spot. All the google spots usually are. It's full of a lot of imagery that we saw this year. A script is a script. Wonderful if i were to nitpick it a little bit. It's obviously focused on a certain agenda. It's the some of the questions if you watch. The whole video are probably not the most googled questions of the year they are selected to present a certain slant on things. So i'd be kinda curious to see what people really did search for and i'm not sure that this was this answers that question. They try to end on a positive note as well. I think i think it's appropriate for the brand And i agree with you that they have selectively May you know may the spot as as we would probably do Yep they can spot the spot so Take a look at that and spend three minutes going through all the why questions on moving on. We're going to address our last ad chatter topic of the day. And there's no creative to go along with this one. This is just a story. We're going to mention it and discuss so the north face. The outdoor brand refused to sell some of their gear to texas oil gas company. Who wanted to buy. These jackets are with with their logo on them and give them as gifts to their team and once they understood that this was a oil and gas company. The north face decided to virtue signal and denied. The order. helped me understand. Well this is a this is an arbitrary decision. And i don't know the particulars of who the north face will and won't sell to but you know when companies make calls like this. This is the equivalent somewhat of the wedding cake baker. Who won't bake for the gay couple you know. It doesn't matter how bad he heterosexual couple would be in real life but oh no just this one condition means you don't get a sale so i don't quite get what the policy is here. It's probably as i said arbitrary. They probably would have turned around and sold it to some other kind of they. The north face could have sold their products to a company that was unsavory completely different way wouldn't've asked twice about it. But what's really going on here beyond just that from the north face is over the next several years you're going to see an attempt to make oil and gas companies. The new tobacco companies in terms of people turning their onto them. There is now a new group called clean creatives. That's their twitter handle. And i believe it's clean creatives dot org. I don't know too much about the the group but they are trying to Determine which ad agencies at which pr firms are actively doing work for fossil fuel companies in an attempt to get them to stop doing that work so essentially guilt-tripping pr firms agencies. And i don't know how effective that'll be in terms of changing the agenda in this country or getting us off fossil fuels or combating climate change. But it is an attempt to vilify certain group companies. And that's a fine line to.

"You ran an ad agency for many years. Did you ever have a situation where creative team or somebody in your organization came to you and said i don't feel comfortable working on this brand this product Should you know should advertising people be more vocal about what accounts they are and aren't willing to work on you turn down a few things I know that you wrote in the book that you had a policy of not taking on certain types of work You know if if. I'm a copywriter in an ad agency. Should i speak up. Could i speak up my shop As you know we wouldn't work on tobacco gambling which. I don't think anyone should get any awards for. I mean that's so We had a policy whereby we asked three questions about pizza work. Can we do work. We will all be proud of is the first question and i had to be unseated. Otherwise we wouldn't test the other to the other two questions. Can we make money and the client make money and the third question. Will we enjoy working on it. We'll we'll we have a good time and so we had to answer number one. If we couldn't answer number two about the money then we say we enjoy anyway. We'll do it for nothing you know kind of what we do that But number one always had to be answered. Now if somebody came up to me and said i don't like legs on this count because the count the client is rude to me. The client bulls me out.

Despite the fact that i'd spent months maybe yes training you and eight months. Maybe years honing your talents and abilities and giving you the benefits of working at my agency. I wouldn't say it's up to you if you want to leave you can leave okay now. that also brings up an interesting point. You brought up the fossil fuel industry.

Let me ask you this you know. Is this something. That can be trained. Is you know is agencies. Don't train people the way they used to. They want people hitting the ground running. They want young folks You know is is this notion of Empathizing with the somewhat with the somewheres can be training can you can you train somebody to do that.

"Hello friends and colleagues. This is david byrne in austin texas in. we have or co host of ad chatter. Dan gold geyer in seattle dan. What's going on in seattle. Oh you know everything is fine over here. We were branded the anarchist jurisdiction and so things are just running wild right now in tomatoes or loosen the streets in the latina's flowing. It's a free for all a wreck and you laugh. I appreciate that So tomatoes routing control. They are just hanging there hanging out everywhere and can off if you want. i love salads. So you know. I would love to pick one and cut it up also have beal seeds so thank you for that danna appreciate humor and let's hope that our listeners do well to move right into the show where it's not humorous all will deal with a series topic right off top Dan we both read the same article on medium by gentleman named ainsley who's british and it's about the culture of overwork in the ad agency business and at one point in his article he says i realized i know nine people in advertising who have had to seek medical help because work induced burn out and exacerbated mental health problems. A few of them were hospitalized. Some had to take a leave of absence. That's nine i know. Dozens more seem strain but are yet to break. This is a scary and horrible article Because it's true. I don't know what question i have to say. When are we going to wake up and snot out of this as as as an industry. Yes this blog has been making around in the last couple of weeks. It's on medium for those of you who want to go. Look it up. And we've seen stories of a few people in the last several years who've been overworked to death there was one i think. In india there was one in japan. Maybe a creatives or people working in advertising just working ridiculous hours around the clock and feeling the pressure to do it when and this is something that for decades advertising has has dealt with and i think that it's only gotten exacerbated more because now we live in a twenty seven twenty four seven culture where emails get sent out at eleven o'clock at night and changes need to be made to in the morning and and presentations needs to be whipped into shape overnight. And so you combine that with a young workforce that has A lot of pressure on it and not a lot of exit strategies. And it's just a combustible situation and there are some agencies at recognize this. I don't think it's every agency certainly not every agency But it's a problem and you know the more recognition. We have of the problem the more it may get addressed this guy craig. Ainsley he names a couple of an agency names in blog. And that's the kind of pressure that's going to have an effect. It's misdefined to me that that creative industries are run by people who seem to have forgotten where the creative spark comes from and how creative is cultivated in a culture. It's definitely not going to come from overworking people. It's going to come from inspiring your people and giving them ruins it's thank and you know So however you structure that whether it's a four day work we or however It needs to be done i. I've seen it done. I worked in agencies that Everyone out the door by six. Were they less creative. A less successful far far from it. They had better systems And that's that's what it's gonna take. It is a system wide top down process. The president of the agency the chief creative officers the chief Account directors need to set the standard and those Those guidelines to say okay. We're not gonna work this way Unfortunately many of them got that job by working that way. So you know. The shit runs downhill as the kids. Like to say So it but it is it is it is it is a management imperative to put those policies in place to say okay. We're knocking over work. Our people and we don't have that expectation and in and we're going to be successful anyway. We're gonna do the best we can and be as profitable as we can without having to work our people to death. it seems like some of the bros. Think it's fraternity. Where you get to haze people and i'm sorry to break it to you for listening. You're one of these people. It's it's not frat now now it's not it's not and i think like i said i think that Now that we are in an era where public confessionals via blogs and medium and lincoln or becoming more and more regular and more and more accepted. I think you're gonna see more of this call out you know. That's real transparency. It is and we have not had that in this business for a long time. We didn't have it until many years ago. I mean. I wrote something a few weeks ago on twitter that you know when i started writing columns for talent zoo i was anonymous because i thought what i was saying was real controversial. You know the young folks in advertising today have no fear or aluminum little fear but not as much fear as anybody else did back in the day they they they talk. They name names They're not afraid to talk about how they feel and policies that they think need to be fixed. That's a good thing. Think starting point. Is you know the quote unquote man is abusive. Yeah so. If that's the starting point you could see where it's going from there so big issue big problem. I'd love to see some more elegant solutions in the very near future Let's move on to some commercials for this episode that we've identified that are worth discussing and this first one is a pasta sauce raoult's homemade which i haven't the cupboard and i like quite a bit. It's a great sauce. Be commercial i will play at su. He could hear it. It's very very simple. It's it's a slide show of stills in the kitchen and.

"I approve this message. Hilarious yeah i laughed. I thought this was very funny. Most baseball teams are not doing very creative work as of late. At least in the last several years that i've seen They just kind of focus on their on their players and hope that they'll sell tickets. This is funny and what struck me is that two things struck me number one. The voice over doesn't sound nearly as sinister as they could But also in light of the last couple of election cycles we've seen negative ads. That are way way more negative than this. Whenever could be so. It's kind of a trope that was Playing off of political spots from fourteen years ago but now this seems kind of tame. But it's funny. It is funny and and i love how it starts with seattle. How can we trust them. Which which is you know very much. Right out of the political advertising page But these these ads campaign Did write about this earlier this week. On the sites you can find that and all. The spots are full of zingers so hats off to the copywriter. I don't know his or her name but One thing that impressed me was this was done in house. Yeah so there was no agency involved in the day. worked with a production company in dallas fort worth area. So there's an in house writer. Unless the writers overthrew production company more than likely they worked for the texas rangers. and they're good copywriter. This is fun stuff. There are several ads. Expect several more So and each one takes on a another city. Yeah i think the division thing because it's the same division. Castro's the mariners right. The astros is really funny too. Yes So that wraps are creative Investigation polka polka today. dan Just a personal level and a professional level. What what are you doing these days and are you bailable for higher.

The beginning is to thinking that this was another car ad and then oh the subliminal fried chicken comes in by chicken fried chicken. I i laughed. I did not necessarily know that it was proposed base until the last second in. That's always one of those tricky things that you hope everybody's paying attention until the end so they can figure out what's Who's really behind all this. Because i thought. When i saw this i was like hardee's carl's junior. You know it is a surprise. Send there's there's a campaign here and last night during the football nfl football. I saw the burger version. And keeping inserting these visuals and audio of these juicy burgers. And you're like who's where what what burger whose burger. Go ahead you might. Your mind goes to the you'd think starts thinking which chain is sponsoring this. Not which delivery service and so it's a it's a misdirect correct. It's fun and fun is good. And which is a great segue into our last campaign Creative of the this particular episode and it's from the texas rangers which is also out with a new campaign where they're also poking fun at Political ads in this case while helping to sell the rangers. And let's listen to the ad that they made to talk about when they place seattle. Which of course is where dan lives. Yes so this division rival here we go play seattle. How can you trust them. Our opponents claim to be mariners but their mascot is but moose according to maritime law. It's illegal for most operate in aquatic vesoul. The texas rangers respect the laws of the see also.

"They have to play. It seems like they might have some better cards. Tell me about this. Two hundred and some thousand members of ford family in the family run business. This seems like a major stretch. Well ford has always been. I think of the big. Three automakers the one that has always been the most self contained in a sense general motors Had as merged with so many other foreign carmakers and Chrysler as i mentioned is now owned by by the germans. I think ford has always been the one. That's tried to tried to draw on the image of henry ford and his and his children and the whatever tight lid the ford family may still have on their company. So they're trying to at least differentiate themselves from their other american manufacturers. I don't know if that resonates with people you know. There's there are people in there. Are chevy people in the world. And they are very passionate about their Devotion to the marks but I i don't know that. This is converting new customers. Yes that's a great question For all ads for all brands are clicked over to the wieden. Kennedy website Where they're putting some of this ford work out there and some of their writing. And i just want to read a little bit. We are ford. We build things. Were proud of over a century ago. We revolutionized the assembly line and then we started building building. The world's first affordable car the most beloved pickup truck on the road the iconic american sports car and the suv. Most people think of when they think of an suv. We helped build the interstate system and the city of detroit we even built mission control for the moon landing so and it goes on so i like when they say we built the interstate system in the city of detroit because that's crossing over into public works. Which would connect to the idea. The ads although i don't you know you're not going to get that out of the ads. And i just think the people want when they go to the car to buy a car. Forty thousand dollar car and it says in this commercial just heard that they're building for every american no they're not through building for every american with forty thousand dollars to buy a car. It's just the the copy and the concept and the strategy is just a stretch in my view. Okay i i don't necessarily disagree. Image ads for car. Manufacturers are just so tough because they're so there's only so much to say and unless you're talking about an individual model or you're in individual features There's there's there's a very limited box to play in when you're selling pickup trucks. It's it really is often about the futures. Because that's what the buyer really wants to know they wanna know what's gonna hammy and power so before we leave this topic I wanna to talk a little bit more about the waving That's happening here by wieden. Kennedy four ford. This is pattern. That wieden kennedy is in And it's been going on for several years. They did The dodge mad And the turbo tax ad which which were both hearkening back to the american revolution And it it. Just you know i chuckle. Because it's like. Where did they get the brief like you know the one of the president's and dan brief like hey. Do you think you could pump up america little bit. I just wondering what is going on. It's a good question. And perhaps they're they're overcompensating for the fact that they're on the left coast and they're trying to do whatever they can to make sure their clients are in touch with middle america. That's one theory. I love that theory. You could always open a shop in omaha Okay stop it We're gonna move onto a spot. That arm has some humor in it. And it is from postmates though delivery.

"David how are you today. Just fine sunny day in central texas. Oh it's the it's the big things damn yeah. We could use a little sunshine here. We've had smoked block out the sun all week. So it's a little touch and go up here. Yes we have been hearing from our friends and watching the news carefully. And especially in oregon. It really seems pretty frightening So let's hope some rain pours down and some blue skies are available to all We are here to discuss advertising as people might do around the water fountain. of course. there's no water so it's virtual but dan and i are ready to dig in to some of the Topics of the week and we're going to start off with an npr story about plastics and Reminds me of my one of my favorite movies of all time. The graduate and the scene in that movie Where the gentleman is advising young ban. He says benjamin one word plastics. And benjamin has no idea. Of course what he's talking about or why you should care and the answer Bottom line if you dig into this. Npr story and how people have been deceived. The oil industry makes more than four hundred billion dollars every year by making plastic So the story. Dan is that the industry the plastics industry. Oil industry have been spending about fifty million dollars a year for decades to convince the american public that recycling of plastics is a good idea and it works unfortunately it doesn't work very well and This investigative report dug deep into it and has shown that the power of pr and straight up. Lying is once again in play comment. Well this is a kind of an issue that i've been writing about on talented for nfl pope for years. This is the type of situation where an advertising agency or pr firm get hired. What seems to be the best of intentions. And they don't do due diligence to realize that this is all crap ola. I live in seattle. Which is An area where the people have the high level of environmental consciousness and we recycle plastic. We recycle glass and paper everywhere else and we also have three bins. We've accomplished been. We've a recycling bin and and a trash bin and we assume that are plastic is recyclable. But the truth is only percent of it really is Ever gets recycled and it's otherwise it's ending up in landfills and the companies behind this effort have known this. And when you think about it what you know put yourself in the position of somebody at an ad agency. And you're like wow. This is our chance to save the world. This is our chance to make an impact on the planet by telling people. Hey this is possible. This is a bright future and nobody questions well. Is there really any truth behind it. And it's one of those situations that makes our industry look less than reputable in time when it's never very it's never looked very reputable. People may question what they don't want to question is their paycheck and the oil industry is able to really make some paydays happen for a lot of different people and a lot of different industries reminds me a little bit of the whole ep. Thing you know. Bp had such great using going and it was very green and let's by our gas from bp. You know yeah. They're the good guys beyond petroleum. That was there. There was their tagline until the deepwater horizon oil spill. Yeah it really does take the air out of the room because what is our guilt factor. you know The people who are dry-cleaned wall but also just the fact that our industry doesn't have standards to help correct this. It's it's embarrassing and bad business. Absolutely makes makes industry look bad it also but it's as you said it's hard to turn down that kind of a payday definitely Well i don't know how we're gonna fix this. It makes me think we shouldn't buy any products that are packaged in plastic luck with that exactly. They've got us boxed in Let's move to the next topic. Ford motor company is with widening. Kennedy's help waving the flag. The red white and blue. And i kind of wonder why that's necessary and why that is a strategic move. That's going to move metal for this domestic automaker. They're out with some new commercials. Bryan cranston is the voice over in this flag-waving commercial. I'm gonna play it so we can hear it and hear him here. We got we met over a century ago this country and this company. We've seen tough times but we've learned where better when we come together. A family lead business with two hundred sixty thousand people working together at plants and offices and dealerships across every state in this union employing more. Us hourly workers than any other automaker. We found were strongest. When we're building assembling more vehicles in america than any other automaker succeed when we build for the future that's why we're making our most iconic vehicles electric. We are both at our best this country and this company then we build for every single american being rebuilt in america. That's why we build for america star spangled banner Talk to me dan. What is this all about well. Much of the spot has to Is focused on pickup trucks and pickup trucks with probably the one area that not only american car manufacturers still have a very big advantage over foreign carmakers but it also appeals to the type of audience that would be Moore's interested in in a patriotic message. There's it such a tough sell in a world where we have such a global supply chain. I mean i'm sure the stereos in your ford vehicles are not made here in america Although much of the rest of the the automobile might so it's you know it's an appeal. It's an appeal to patriotism. We've seen it plenty of times before i used to work on chevrolet which For years had the tagline and american revolution. We've seen Chrysler talk about a imported from detroit. So you know. They're they're playing the car that.
